Writer/director James Gunn doesn't think there will be a need to postpone Warner Bros.' "The Suicide Squad" and Marvel Studios' "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" despite cascading delays in film release due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"Right now there’s no reason for #TheSuicideSquad release date to move. We are on or ahead of schedule," Gunn tweeted. "We were extremely fortunate to wrap shooting & set up editing from our homes (due to a post production team & studio with foresight) before quarantine."

"The Suicide Squad" was filmed from September 2019 to February 2020, and is scheduled for release Aug. 6, 2021.

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" doesn't have a release date currently, but Gunn has said previously he intended to begin filming this year.

"Right now the plans with Vol 3 are also exactly the same as they were before coronavirus," he tweeted subsequently.
